Azealia Banks, known for releasing one very strong single and several strong and correct opinions about Iggy Azalea, is a topless cat-woman in the latest issue of Playboy. Two actual cats were there, too, although it does not appear they enjoyed themselves on anywhere near the same level.
The accompanying interview steers clear of Banks' well-worn beef with Igloo Australia, but it does give her a chance to reiterate what's become her central thesis: She's not willing to compromise to be accepted by the mainstream music business that has embraced Iggy, or by fat, white America, which she hates:
"I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma—that's really America."
And even the white Americans who are ostensibly Azealia fans won't stop telling her to chill out about issues of race and stop acting so "angry" on Twitter. She's not feeling that one bit:
"Why do I have to explain this to y'all? My little white fans will be like, 'Why do you want reparations for work you didn't do?' Well, you got handed down your grandfather's estate and you got to keep your grandmother's diamonds and pearls and shit."
Banks' uncompromising ethos also applies to the sexy Playboy stuff. She explains she hasn't gotten laid in a while, mainly because of her thorough process of vetting dudes for possible "herpes or some shit" before any sexual encounter. And because most men can't hang with her "black female problems":
I should be getting dick all the time. I like to fuck. [laughs] But I can't just meet a guy and fuck him. I'm too afraid of getting herpes or some shit. I like to feel them out, and then I start talking about my black female problems, and we get into a conversation about race, and then we disagree and don't have another date.
She's not too mad about it, though:
Whatever. I'll just hang out with my mother. It's okay, because pussy is way more sacred than penis.
You actually shouldn't feed cats milk—it's bad for them.
